Title: IMAGE PROCESSING APPARATUS AND METHOD
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to an image processing apparatus and method with which a decrease in encoding efficiency can be mitigated. A current block of an image is subjected to intra prediction to generate a predicted image, a difference between an optimum intra prediction mode for the intra prediction and a predicted value of the intra prediction mode is calculated, the image is encoded using the generated predicted image, and the calculated difference is encoded. The present disclosure can be applied to, for example, an image processing apparatus, an image encoding apparatus, or an image decoding apparatus.
